Poem. Sometimes You/I Just Need a Huge Hug

  • Author:

I am an empath which means I can "feel" others emotions and feelings as well as put into words things others would find hard to understand.


Sometimes my poetry is deep,

depends on my mood,

and the secrets I keep.

Sometimes my mood goes away,

drawn out by the pen,

with the words that I say.

Sometimes darkness comes down,

an image of doom,

turns my smile to a frown.

Sometimes my heart seems to cry,

tears drip in blood,

yet my spirit flies high.

Sometimes I’m unable to ask,

words in a scramble,

becomes such a task.

Sometimes my work is a drain,

the title may put you off,

or the content cause you pain.

Sometimes life can't always be joy,

although I smile when I can,

when its hard to get by.

Sometimes you can't see the light,

covered by a mist of despair,

while trying to make everything al-right.

Sometimes I blame my Bipolar,

its like living in the dark,

when I desperately need solar.

Sometimes still waters run deep,

beyond the depth of my soul,

and the memories I keep.

Sometimes my life seems so calm,

upbeat and happy,

far away from the harm.

Sometimes when I find the time,

my pain onto paper,

I release with a rhyme.

Sometimes all I request,

is a little bit of love,

to help me become my best.

Hugs are so lovely, indeed, and they do wonders for one's mind and mental issues; I wish I could get more :''( But I enjoyed reading this amazing poem. Voted up, and beautiful.

Sorry it's awkward using my smart phone to enter text as the keypad is quite small and my thumb to large! So I end up hitting more letters at the same time...

What a beautiful expression! Yes, we all need a hug as you describe above, once in a while. I enjoyed reading this and I wish you many huge hugs in your life!

Great write and a lot of truth. Sometime a good old bear hug goes a long way to making one feel better.

I understand..Sometimes when I write something sad, someone may think something is wrong but we can draw from many areas for inspiration..Hope you have a great day.
